Meadows Museum Launches New Series of Public Gallery Talks, Art in Focus

Make the most of your Wednesday lunch break with Art in Focus, the Meadows Museum new series of public gallery talks. From February through May 2016, on the first Wednesday of each month at 12:15 p.m., Meadows will offer a 15-minute gallery talk on a single work of art. The series will focus on works in the permanent collection, and the talks will be delivered by Museum staff.

The goal of this series is to encourage a range of approaches to exploring the visual arts, providing a unique perspective, and inviting visitors to look more closely at individual objects on display in the Museum.

The series kicked-off this past Wednesday with a talk presented by Edward Payne, Meadows Prado Curatorial Fellow, on Francisco Goya’s, Bury them and keep quiet (Enterrar y callar), c. 1810. Working proof of Plate 18 from The Disasters of War.

Admission is free with your SMU ID!
